Synopsis for "Time Out of Time"
Walker Gabriel had always been interested in science and more specifically temporal physics. When he was thrown out of grad school he was approached by Konstantin Vyronis who suggested that Gabriel put his research to more practical use and before long Gabriel became an industrial thief.
Equipped with a special suit designed by David Clinton, the original Chronos, Gabriel was able to bend time around him so that he could perform his crimes while the suit streched milliseconds into minutes around him. On his 23rd birthday Vyronis hired Gabriel to steal a prototype tachyon generator for him. Everything went well until a Linear Man suddenly showed up trying to stop him from stealing the device. Unlike everybody else the Linear Man was able to move at normal speed like Gabriel and before Gabriel knew what hit him the Linear Man had knocked him unconscious. Just as the Linear Man was about to take the generator and bring it to the Vanishing Point for evaluation, Vyronis showed up and shot him. Gabriel then woke up and found the Linear Man dead and Vyronis about to escape using a special time travel device. As Gabriel didn't want to take the fall for something Vyronis had done he tried stopping him, but instead he found himself hurled through the timestream only to end up in 1873, just outside Smallville. Here he was found by Sheriff Nate Kent who brought the drifter to the Clark's farm.
The chronological information for this series differs from that of the rest of the series in the Unofficial DC Index Series, as Walker Gabriel not only appears in both the past, the present, and the future but also at various different ages himself. In this issue we meet a 23 years old Gabriel, as well as a 30 years old Gabriel and in two other minor appearances, one at old age and one somewhere in between his two major appearances. To be able to follow the chronology of Walker Gabriel each "version" will be treated as separate characters until one version ages into the next version.
The 23 years old Walker Gabriel first appears in 1998 and then in 1873 in this story. The 23 years old Gabriel appearances flow seemingly straightforward from issue to issue so no chronological info will be noted for this "incarnation" unless he makes an appearance in another title than Chronos or in a flashback to events proceeding his first appearance in this issue.
The thirty years old Walker Gabriel appears in 1960 and then at Chronopolis on pages 1 through 7, then in 1998 and during the Jurassic age on pages 14 through 16. So far this is the only appearances of the 30 years old Walker Gabriel.
This issue also introduces Chronopolis, a city out of time.
